Easter Egg Hunting

At the weekend we took our grandaughter who is five, on her first Easter Egg Hunt. You begin by getting your facepainted, a disguise is essential for creeping up on unsuspecting Easter eggs....

Wearing your brand new clothes, you scramble under bushes and shin up some trees,

Find a stinging nettle patch to step into and kick up as much dust as you can. Roll down a few steep inclines and dip the toes of those white canvas shoes into the lake, then kick up some more dust for good measure.

Please do NOT pick the flowers
~ but these are for you Nanny....
No wonder those terrified Eggs are hiding ?

This was so much fun,
can we do it again next year please?

Egg Moon ~ Pink Moon

The Full Moon in April is known as the Egg Moon, so called because it is now that the days grow longer, that the hens begin to lay more eggs. Other birds are also nest building and getting ready for the 'Stork to Arrive'.

The Full Pink Moon in April gets it's name from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring.

Other names for this month’s celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.
